No F-ing way am I doing those mini-games ever again. I could see myself playing it again, but the terrible memories just make me not want to.

Warning, the follow blurb contains language which may not be suitable for younger children:
Butterfly hunt? Kimari sucks balls, why am I even doing this??!
Cactuar Hunt: OK, closer... closer...  clo-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAFAWK!
Blitzball? ZZZzzzzzzzzZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Blitzball hours later? Jechshot2! Jechshot2! Jechshot2! 34-0 win!

You just reminded me about everything I hated about FFX.  

He forgot the cloister of trials.

I liked the cloister levels. Some puzzle solving is good, much better than always standard dungeons

You mean those puzzle solving sections when you go to meet the fayth? Yeah, I liked those sections, too, for the same reasons.

I don't remember half that crap and it's probably for the best. I already played myself sick of that game. Unless they actually change something, I'm not getting it.

Tales of Innocence R for PSVita. Should be good and hopefully we get it this time! I have been wanting to play this one for a LONG time, and the only way would be to download and use the fan translation from AbsoluteZero.

O and there is another countdown now, so there are announcing multiple Tales games again.

Yeah, I'm not excited. I would've preferred Tales of Hearts by a mile, ToI just wasn't that good. I'll still get it if it comes out here, since playing it on the Vita will be way better than playing it on my computer, but um...they better do Tales of Hearts next, that's for sure.

Forget everything I just said, it's a reimagining, not a remake. Now I'm excited.

I'm never gonna learn to drive.=( There's so much I have to remember and pay attention to all at the same time, my senses just can't handle it. I've been learning to drive for years now and I'm not getting any better. But I need to drive for so many things. This sucks...

Phantasy Star Zero - I played this for about 5 hours straight when I first picked it up. Still only just beat the second Quest, though. Haven't felt the urge to play it again yet, but I'll try to get in some time tomorrow.

Dragon Quest IV - I randomly felt the urge to pick this up. I'm really enjoying the story so far (just finished the first chapter), even though I still don't like the gameplay.

Disgaea DS - Trying to finish the story missions so I can pick up the sequels...and so far my perfectionism has brought my progress down to a crawl.:( I'm still pretty early in, too.

This is a very interesting article, and I learned a lot from it. It still makes me sad that Japanese console games are so limited in their appeal, but reading why does my heart some good.

Also, this article reminds me why I gave up being a real-life "Weeaboo" - there's no way I could keep up with life in Japan. 13 hour work-days on a regular basis would kill me.

V What was the last thing you bought?

If it plays like HoL as well, I'll be all for it.
1299  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Tales countdown site on: September 12, 2011, 03:05:02 PM
Yeah, I'm betting on a Vita title. Either a port or one of the lesser series.
People have been joking about yet another Tales of Phantasia port.

If it comes to the U.S. this time, I'm not going to complain.

It might be a Vita game, judging from this article: http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/09/06/vita_tales/

I just saw the latest trailer posted on the main site.  If I didn't already have ready access to a Playstation 3, I would seriously consider buying one just to play this game if a Western release were announced.  It looks like an animated film that you can play.  In my mind this game is definitely a system seller.  If it plays half as well as it looks, I can see this being a genuine classic.

The look of the game is just so impressive.  Every time I see it, I can't help but think it was a labor of love on the part of the creators.

I feel ya there, but I'm gravely disappointed in the gameplay from what I've seen so far. It looks like Dragon Quest with Monster raising elements, two of my least favorite aspects of RPGs. Even if it does come out here, I'll probably have to pass.

Yeah it is my first mmo pretty much I've played some of those free ones befor it though, and I have two characters both level 3 paladins. One's a blood elf, and the other's a dranei

Ah, I see.  Paladins will get more fun at level 10 when you can start on your talent tree.

I'm scared to try an MMORPG, I know I'd be hopelessly addicted

Possible.  A friend of a friend didn't even play video games and he gave WoW a shot.  He got so addicted he flunked out of college.  I remember my friend saying he popped in his room one morning to ask him to breakfast and he was on his PC playing WoW while there was a naked girl from the previous night in his bed.  Strange priorities.

I don't think I ever got hooked.  I originally used it as a coping mechanism and it worked pretty great.  Don't know if I ever could say I was addicted though as nothing in my life suffered.

You know, I was thinking of getting into MMOs, but you've successfully scared me away from them. Luckily I got singleplayer MMOs to appease my thirst for grinding and item collecting.

Anyways, I'm surrently playing Phantasy Star Zero. Very fun game, btw, just like PSO. I kinda doubt it, but is there anyone here interested in playing this game online?

I wish it wasn't turn based.

Well, at least they seem to let you move between turns. That's...something.

Needless to say the English dub on Hulu takes away from the enjoyability some since the voices don't really fit the characters - at least not nearly as well as they do in the original dub.

But it's still good regardless. I think youtube has the Japanese dub on it.

I thought the english dub was very well done actually. Even if it wasn't, at least I can understand what they're saying.

I keep meaning to finish this show. I saw the first two episodes on Hulu and thought it was pretty great. Good characters and plot and everything. Guess I'll add it to my list of stuff to finish by the end of the year.
